A ZERO SUM GAME IV
There is a story, many years ago a would be robber walked into a convenience store, with a paper bag on his head, to rob it. As he asked the clerk for the money, the clerk just laughed, you see! the robber had forgot to cut out holes for his eyes in the bag and was thus unable to see.
Such is the situation when you approach the elections, most of the electorate is blinded by, not the facts, but their own preconceived notions of what will work and what is good for them and thus for the country. Many years ago, just prior to such an election, I wrote about the ignorance of the average voter. But let me say this first, many of us try to get the information but one way or another we are faced with the biases of the media and more so of the messengers( politicians).
The first lesson in any democracy today should be this, just as one does not start a whore house or a gambling establishment just to provide a service for the public, and jobs for the poor, ( the idea is to make money right?) no one today runs for any political office without a certain degree of self interest and a real knowledge of the monetary gains that accrue through that political power, any one to tell you otherwise is a liar!
The second lesson is that you can only spend a dollar one time, and a borrowed dollar must also be paid back at some time. As in all the dollars that have been borrowed by our country must be paid back. The reality today is also that these monies CANNOT be paid back without both the raising of taxes and the cuts in spending not just one or the other.
The third, the true evidence that this country has been stolen, run by the thieves is that since the housing debacle began (2006) and the market crashed in 2008 people are not being prosecuted, like Micheal Milken was in the junk bond scheme, now we have just changed the name of junk bonds and called them Mortgage Backed Securities, (MSB) it is the same pile of...
And the last one, you can vote how ever you want to it might make you feel better, thing are not going to change, no time soon, but we can hope and change again in just two more years.
LIFE IS A GAME OF CONNECT THE DOTS, IF YOU DON'T CONNECT ALL THE DOTS OR DON'T CONNECT THEM IN THE RIGHT ORDER YOU NEVER GET THE PICTURE
